3g pitch or grass pitch?
« on: March 05, 2015, 10:26:30 PM »
After watching a few falcons games this year as well as novo's cup match on the Kingston park pitch what do you prefer? Looks like most premiership teams are heading the 3/4g pitch route next few seasons but I still prefer grass played a match against Durham uni a few seasons ago on maiden castles 3g pitch and hated every minute to me there death traps for causing injury's but each to there own I guess, you still can't beat a muddy old swamp pitch on a fine February's winter day for me

4g for me. So much better for maximising pitch use. I imagine it must be better for minis especially.

Personally speaking, I've always preferred grass. Never had 3 or 4G when I was plodding the paddock back in the good old days, but I found from experience that our players' joints always felt heavier and knocks were harder to shake off after playing on artificial surfaces.

An American football team play there.. to be honest it was a death trap in the end... not maintained at all properly

That's the perfect game for a 3G pitch, plenty of protection. I didn't like the Gosforth pitch at all. We always seemed to get muscle pulls on it, plus one serious knee injury caused by a player being unable to turn.
